Fall Office Style: Stripes with Bows + A Pop of Mustard ($60 Outfit!)


This time of year, I start pulling out all my favorite sweaters and knitwear, especially in colors and patterns that I associate most with Fall. In this case, it's mustard-yellow and stripes. You can never go wrong with classic stripes; they're timeless and can be styled year-round in multiple variations, but I especially love them paired with a bold pop of color. And since mustard is such a warm, rich color that complements those found in the turning leaves of Fall, it was my pick for this particular look, which is one of my takes on a pretty (and seasonal) office look.




I think it's easy to see why I adore this sweater so much. The sleeves! Are they not the most darling detail? Love, love love them! The ribbon bows and the chiffon ruffles had me sold the moment I saw them. They're the perfect touch that blends classic and feminine style so seamlessly. I couldn't be happier with this sweater!

I actually ordered mine a year ago here, but it sold out quickly soon after. Then, a week ago or so after I styled this look, I was thrilled to see it had been re-stocked online, and quickly shared the news along with a sneak peek of this outfit via my Instagram. Soon after posting it, though, it sold out again! (Always seems to happen!) Fortunately, I had already found this exact sweater totally by chance on Amazon here! I was so surprised to find it, along with its other color counterpart in black with white stripes here! I love both, and the great news is that they're just under $22! Cute and affordable -- can't beat that!

If you're worried about the one-size-only sizing, don't be. The fabric is nice and stretchy and will look flattering on all sizes. It's also a nice, medium-weight thickness and doesn't require a layering cami underneath. Just stick with a nude or white bra and you'll be fine. ;-)



Another recent re-stock is this mustard pencil skirt in double-serge wool from J.Crew! The mustard color is back this season at J.Crew Factory here with a host of other yummy colors that I just raved about in my Columbus Day Sales blog post on Saturday. These pencil skirts have been a longtime favorite of mine; their colors, their fit, and their quality remain intact and as good as new even after years of wear! To me, they're worthy of the investment even at full price, but when you can get them on sale, it's even better! Today is the last day to take advantage of the 50%-off sale price of $34.95. (Prices go back up at 8:59pm PST, 11:59pm EST.)

In addition to the mustard color, I own and love the burgundy and camel colors, which are also back this season with all sizes in stock!



Leather camel accessories warm up the look and infuse more Fall-like colors. Every gal needs a pair of leather camel pumps in her wardrobe!

 Mine are older from Ann Taylor, but I was able to find an almost-identical leather pair by Calvin Klein here on sale for only $74.25 (25% off) plus FREE shipping through today only! (Use code "COLUMBUS" at check-out. Prices go back up at 8:59pm PST, 11:59pm EST.) I love that these ones have the same classic and sleek silhouette and heel height of 3.5," which is my ideal heel height for pumps.

My camel dome satchel is by Michael Kors, which I scored at TJ Maxx a few months ago for around $100! I found similar MK ones online here and here if you love this same color (called "luggage") and style. I love the clean, simple shape of it, and of course, the versatile color. This one and the ones I linked all come with a removable crossbody strap, too -- great for us mommies on the go who need a hands-free option!

Have a wonderful rest of the day (or long, holiday weekend to those of you with no work today!)
